Coming out of Joplin, Missouri is Me Like Bees with their debut LP The Ides. Me Like Bees first started to gain popularity with their first single “Naked Trees,” which was released to help with charitable donations for the recovery effort of their hometown (devastated by a tornado in 2011). Since that time the four-member band – made up of Pete Burton on lead guitar, Nick Bynum on bass , Luke Sheafer on vocals & guitar, and Timothy Cote on drums – have been putting together The Ides. The Ides highlight the bands ability to craft songs that are catchy and yet have great lyrics that tell a story with each song. The album as a whole is more than enjoyable to listen to. Me Like Bees are so confident that you’ll enjoy this album that they are allowing you hear The Ides in its entirety above. Preview The Ides then grab you copy through iTunes.
